x86/efi: Load fixmap GDT in efi_call_phys_epilog() before setting %cr3
Commit eeb89e2bb1ac ("x86/efi: Load fixmap GDT in efi_call_phys_epilog()") moved loading the fixmap in efi_call_phys_epilog() after load_cr3() since it was assumed to be more logical. Turns out this is incorrect: In efi_call_phys_prolog(), the gdt with its physical address is loaded first, and when the %cr3 is reloaded in _epilog from initial_page_table to swapper_pg_dir again the gdt is no longer mapped. This results in a triple fault if an interrupt occurs after load_cr3() and before load_fixmap_gdt(0). Calling load_fixmap_gdt(0) first restores the execution order prior to commit eeb89e2bb1ac and fixes the problem.
